Admissions Process – 5 steps


1. Submit a completed application form (via Open Apply)

The first step in the admissions process is the submission of a completed application form and relevant documentation online to Wellspring’s Open Apply page by the parent(s)/guardian(s) with $100 ($ 200 discounted at 50% for a limited time) non-refundable application fee.

2. Application review

Once all records have been collected, the application will be reviewed and parents/guardians will be notified whether they have been granted an interview.

3. Interview

All students are required to attend an interview after all material has been submitted. At least one parent is required to attend the interview.  The interview appointment is not an indicator of eventual acceptance.

4. Acceptance

Acceptance decisions, or updates on the status of your application will normally be released within three school days of the student interview.

5. Payment of Entrance Fees

For all new students accepted before June, a non-refundable entrance fee of $3,000, which is the non-refundable capital development fee 2,525$ and the nonrefundable auxiliary fee 475$ (paid in cash USD only or by international wire transfer if from outside Lebanon), along with the non-refundable enrollment fee of LBP 6,000,000 deductible from the tuition fees will be required within one week of the acceptance letter date in order to reserve the place up until the first tuition payment is due in June. Tuition installments not paid by this deadline may result in a new student’s acceptance to be moved to the waiting list, regardless of whether or not you have paid the non-refundable registration fee.

  • All applicants accepted after June will be required to submit the 1st full tuition installment in order to reserve a place for next academic school year starting in September.  This installment will also be non-refundable
  • Late applicants accepted after the first day of classes will be required to submit the first full tuition installment before the first day the new student attends classes.  All tuition fees are non-refundable once the student has attended his/her first class.
